The lens shutter to which you refer is actually the lens cover - the shutter itself is located within the camera, and controls the exposure.

Pull the leader over to the orange mark, then close the back.

You're on the right track with oxidation. Try cleaning the contacts in the body and on the lens with contact cleaner, and let it dry. Remove the battery, and clean the contacts inside the camera.

Nikon F65 35mm... | Answered on Nov 19, 2017

I've read recently of a slew of older Nikon amateur film cameras from the late '80's to mid-'90's that have electronics that have failed. Their prosumer cameras (8008, N90, F100, etc) don't seem to be affected as much as their amateur cameras (N2000, N60, N65, etc). You could try cleaning the contacts of both the camera body and lens - as well as the battery compartment, but if that doesn't work, you may be out of luck. The good news is that you can pick up another N65 for less than ten bucks at most camera shops, both online and brick and mortar.

It's broken. The K1000 will automatically advance the counter to the end of your roll. Removing the film and closing the back should reset it. If it's not doing that, it's broken.

Take it to a local machinist. Should be easy to machine another one.

Since it's a film camera, there are a couple of things to check:
1. You have left the lens cap on.
2. If this is a single lens reflex camera, take the lens off and make sure that the mirror isn't stuck in the "up" position. If it is, GENTLY pull it down until it stays down. At this point, your shutter may be open. Try cocking the shutter again, fire off a test shot, and see if the mirror sticks in the up position. If it does, you probably need to replace the mirror bumper foam - age can make foam deteriorate into a gooey, tar-like substance that can make the mirror stick in the up position.
3. Does the camera have a T (for Time) setting on the shutter speed dial? If so, turn it off the Time setting and set it to a manual shutter speed such as 1/60 - or whatever your 'X' synch speed is.
4. Your batteries died in mid-exposure. Replace the batteries. You may have enough juice in them to show the viewfinder display, but not enough to finish the exposure and close the shutter.

Hi, I watched the videos, but I still can't find a solution to open my luggage (Brand Antler) lock. I remember what is the passcode I set, somehow it just could be opened by using the same passcode.
Please help! thanks

The handle probably operates the pan and tilt operations, and the head rotates through 90 degrees for vertical shots. The QR plate screws into the tripod socket on the base of the camera, then clips to the tripod head.

My mounting plate broke as well when it fell over. There is a vendor on Amazon who sells them, but they are 7.99, and shipping is 7.00, not Prime eligible, so just the plate comes out to 14.99, which is about the price for a new TG-5060. I'm going to ditch the mount and drill a hole through the tripod quick release, then use a piece of bolt with the head cut off and a wing nut to attach it. It's either that or through the tripod away, and I hate to waste things that can be fixed.

The 80s 167MT uses good old fashioned mechanical links between the camera body and lens. Remove the lens, and press the depth of field button. If you don't see the lever that connects the aperture control from in the camera body to the lens move, then something's obviouly broken in the camera body.
